Should The CBC Be Privatized?

Canada’s next government might try to privatize the CBC. “The truth is, since the late ’70s, when independent production began in earnest thanks to taxpayer support, a huge business has grown up where once there was CBC and little else. The entertainment-media industry is not about to shrink in this wired world. Quite the opposite. So, rather than weeping and wailing about what was — or wasn’t — perhaps the wiser course is to look to the future and act as if there is one. Maybe the time has simply come to rewrite this script.”
